Event/course type Training course
Event Introduction The Prevent strategy, published by the Government in 2011, is part of our overall counter-terrorism strategy. The aim of the Prevent strategy is to reduce the threat to the UK from terrorism by stopping people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism' (Department of Education, 2015). To comply with the duty everyone working with children and young people should be able to demonstrate an awareness and understanding of the risk of radicalisation in their workplace. The risk will vary greatly and most likely will be low locally, however this may and can change rapidly; no organisation is risk free. Therefore, this training will be appropriate for all those that have a safeguarding role within their organisation.
Event Content Prevent work depends on effective partnership. To demonstrate effective compliance with the duty, schools are encouraged to be productive partners with the local Prevent coordinators, the police and Achieving for Children. Local delivery of Prevent is aligned with Community Safety and is part of the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board training agenda. As part of the commitment to help communities and school based practitioners understand the risks and vulnerabilities in this area, this training is funded and free of charged.

The Prevent Duty Guidance makes it clear that frontline staff who engage with the public should:
• Understand what radicalisation means and understand why people may be vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism as a consequence of it
• Be aware of what we mean by the term “extremism” and the relationship between extremism and terrorism
• Know what measures are available to prevent people from becoming drawn into terrorism and how to challenge the extremist ideology that can be associated with it
• Understand how to obtain support for people who may be being exploited by radicalising influences

This workshop aims to help practitioners understand the risks and vulnerabilities and is particularly valuable for all staff who are working with families and young people. The training will explain how people are manipulated by extremist ideologies and what 'vulnerability' looks like in this context. It will also enable you to use your own experience and professional judgement to identify and address any issues of radicalisation and explain how the local safeguarding children's board and support mechanisms work.

The training session will include:
• Descriptions of the Prevent Duty
• Description of how safeguarding duties fit with the Prevent Duty
• Video clips
• Discussion about professional judgement and referral to Prevent.
• Case studies
Event Learning Outcomes By the end of the session school staff will:

• Increase understanding, knowledge, awareness and purpose of Prevent
• Increase understanding of the process of radicalisation
• Increase confidence in recognising when someone may be vulnerable to radicalisation
• Explain how to raise concerns
• Increase understanding of risk assessment, policy and procedure and the Channel Process
• Describe a proportionate response
